As a result of my recent slump... I decided to do an eigth circle of doom with CT-ART. Since I completed the seven circles in May and then STOPPED, my calculation skills seemed to be waning. Starting at ground zero. I hope to reset the bad trend.
The Polgar Brick has been a supplement... but I find it not as fulfilling as the actual interaction of the CT-ART ( or similar) program.
I've been focusing too much on opening preparation this summer with dimminishing returns. As for the quest with Strategy 2.0, I can't seem to find my stride. I've done quite a few problems relating to Pawn structures ( which has the highest number of problems) but since I can't test according to level like CT-ART its hard to get into gear. I may pick up Convetika's end game CD ... later this fall.
The sword's dull, rusty and heavy... need to get back into shape.
